Just been out in the garden to confirm i have a baby hedgehog visiting. And yes it was there, only the one on the open feeder. Would say around 3 months old, maybe a little longer. I always seem to get them late, don`t have a clue why though.

It was very robust placi. I took my eye off it for a split second and it was gone. Am now putting out a bit of extra food in a few places.

It saddens me every time I see that. They're much easier to miss than hit.
